Winter Boot Roundup

Anyone else celebrate Fall until October 31st, and move straight into Christmas? I love moving right into decorating, and this year the weather followed suit with cold Winter temps! I hate frigid weather, but I do love a good excuse to slip into a cozy Winter boot! These boots are my absolute fave of all time! I lived in them last Winter, they’re so comfy, yet cute! I’m loving this year’s new hues (here, here & here), as well! My go-to with my fave faux leather leggings this year are chunky hiking boots! I love a cozy wedge sneaker for a chic casual look also! Of course, I love rolling down this staple with a sherpa pullover, too!

My 5 Top Nordstrom Sale Must-Haves

The NSale is officially live for public access! Here are my top must-haves to scoop up before they are gone!

#1 LEOPARD | I will be incorporating leopard detail in booties, camis and cardis this Fall! The neutral print is so versatile, you can’t go wrong! This comfy cardi is sold out (not sure if it will be restocking), but I found a dupe here! I can’t wait to pair this silk cami with long dusters! (More options: here, here & here)

Skirt | Denim (another great buy!)

#2 GLO PRO | This has been one of my favorite beauty buys. I use the lip, eye, and body attachments, as well. It basically tricks your skin into thinking it needs repaired, so cellular growth is promoted, allowing products to penetrate deeper into the skin to be much more effective! [ Sale Price $179 – Retail $260]

#3 OVERSIZED SWEATERS | I’m soaking in all the oversized coziness when crisp Fall air arrives. These pullovers pair perfectly with these boots, or these must have leggings and slip on flats! (Another great option)

#4 SNAKESKIN BOOTS | Another neutral print I’m loving this season. These boots are a fun alternative to a basic taupe or black, to spice up any outfit! [Sale Price $79.90 – Retail $119.95]

#5 RUNNING SHOES | I normally get a new pair of running shoes each Fall. This staple has a fun subtle dose of sparkle! They also come in White/Rose Gold combo. [Sale Price $63.90 – Retail $85]

If you’re looking to stock up on gift ideas, I recommend this throw, this blanket, or this diffuser! I’d love to know your favorite finds, as well!

My NSale Picks & Tips

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 |15 |16

It’s finally here, and it did not disappoint! I rounded up my top picks from this year’s Anniversary sale, with staples to build a chic F/W wardrobe. As someone who thrives off of neutral hues, (& a closet full of them), I am loving snakeskin footwear this season!

TIPS:

  • Shop online & Pick Up in Store.. Items are selling out at an all time high this year. I ordered my items online, for in-store pick up
  • If an item you love does sell out, be sure to keep checking online in case returns are made.. I am dying for these booties!
  • Snag investment staples.. I focus on my everyday core pieces: boots, denim, sweaters, cami’s, activewear
  • Pair your pieces.. If you can’t create multiple outfits out of it, it’s probably not the best investment piece
  • School Shop.. Hudson begins preschool in August, I stocked up on shoes, boots and outerwear before they go to full price
  • Stock up.. Blink, and the holidays will be here! It’s the perfect time to stock up on beauty, accessories & home pieces

I’ll be styling pieces, as well as including my top picks for kids and home decor, stay tuned!

Fall Transition

Cardigan | Tank | Denim | Boots | Bag | Earrings

Hudson: Shirt | Joggers | Boots

You know that time of year when the morning air is crisp enough to make you reach for cardigans and boots? That transition period gets me so ecstatic, because I live for all things Fall!

I can’t count the number of times that I realize Hudson and I are unintentionally in coordinating clothing. Coincidence, or maybe my subconscious styling us? ha. It was his first time strolling city streets this week, (we live in the middle of corn fields, cows, and crickets!) and he loved every minute of it! He’s definitely his mama’s child!

I love transition pieces like long cardigans, utility and denim jackets, because I can layer them over tanks and tees, and remove them as it warms up throughout the day. These boots are ridiculously comfy, and come in sleek neutrals!

The joy on his face captures my heart! There is nothing I love more than taking him places to explore!

We couldn’t end the day without a treat! The Milkshake Factory is high up on the list of deliciousness, and one of our new faves! If you’re in the city, it’s a must!

This season is all about texture and suede is on my radar. I became obsessed with this Moto jacket the second I spotted it. ‘Tis the season to layer, and what better way to do so than these basic v-neck tees, that A) aren’t see through B) wash well and C) are under $20! I’m loving the lace up trend, what a fun spin on a trendy tee (under $30!) for an instantly stylish look. OTK boots are universally flattering, and I couldn’t be more in love with this versatile neutral hue! Get 20% off here) One thing I live in, in cold temps is long, cozy cardigans. This are some of my favorite hues to sport during my favorite season!

Weekend Links

  1. This homemade “chicken” soup is essential this weekend, while I’m feeling under the weather. I switched up this recipe a little by adding gluten free noodles and vegan chicken. It can easily be swamped with  chicken, for a non-vegan version.

2. Get a start on your Holiday shopping, while staying warm and cozy. Enjoy 25% off your entire purchase at Kate Spade and Saks.  Kate Spade code: INDULGE   |  Saks code: THANKYOU

3. Looking for Fall inspo? Check out the tablescapes, decor and recipes that have me inspired.

4. Pregnancy has my skin totally out of whack. This mask is one of my go-to’s and so is the cleansing sponge. Definitely trying out this detoxifying cleanser, in this perfectly poreless trio, this weekend.

5. I’m all about cozy cardigans and ponchos right now. All full price apparel is 20% off. Code: FALLFUN
